Hosts Hungary among day one winners in Siofok

Belarus, Bulgaria and Portugal also collected maximum points at the Euro Beach Soccer League stage.


Hungary showed little mercy against a youthful Andorra side on Friday as the Euro Beach Soccer League, Siofok, hosts kicked off the competition with a 14-1 win.

The Andorrans named a much-changed and inexperienced side for their league opener in Hungary and struggled to make an impact against a side who will have strong ambitions of promotion this year.

Goalkeeper Laszlo Szacsko was among those to inflict the damage as he grabbed a hat-trick to bolster the hosts’ hopes of reaching September’s Promotion Final.

Earlier, Portugal gave Azerbaijan a tough introduction to life in Division A of the Euro Beach Soccer League as the five-time competition winners claimed a dominant 9-3 win.

Azerbaijan gained promotion from the second tier in 2016 and, despite strong spells, endured a rude awakening as Portugal showed their ruthless side to confirm their spot at the Superfinal in September.

Belarus picked up where they left off last year in Siofok as they saw off Poland 3-0 in the other Division A clash. 

Last year’s Euro Beach Soccer League stage winners had goals from hat-trick hero Ihar Bryshtsel, Ivan Kanstantsinau, Vadzim Bokach and Dzianis Samsonov to thank as well as a wonderful display from goalkeeper Valery Makarevich.

Nicolas Alejandro - the former Spain captain - continues to enjoy success with his new side while European champions Poland will look to improve through the weekend in their bid for a Superfinal spot.

Filip Filipov was the main for Bulgaria in Friday's first match as his six goals helped ensure a 10-5 win against Denmark.

Neither of the Division B rivals featured at last year’s Promotion Final but Bulgaria gave themselves a chance as they held off a second-period rally from the Danes to tie up maximum points on the opening day.
